'''Castle:''' I’m flattered.<br><br>
 
 
'''Castle:''' I’ll bet he killed his brother to take over his life!<br>
 
'''Beckett:''' As an accountant in Poughkeepsie?!<br><br>
 
 
'''Castle:''' What about this: Zalman gets in over his head.  He lures his brother down here, suffocates him, sticks him in a tank so it looks like he’s dead.  Meanwhile, Zalman as Edmund inherits his own magic shop, collects his own insurance all the while takes Edmund’s wife and children who love him as his own.  It’s dead ringer!<br>

'''Castle:''' (rubs hands together to make the phone disappear) Answer what?<br>
 
'''Martha:''' Oh well done.  Of course, making your phone disappear doesn’t make your problem disappear.<br><br>
 
 
'''Castle:''' Nothing’s going on.  No, nothing at all.  Everything is fine.  Everything is just fine.  It’s ordinary.  Problem is I don’t want ordinary.  I want…<br>
 
'''Martha:''' Magic?<br><br>
 
 
'''Castle:''' I gotta go!<br>
 
'''Martha:''' Now you see him.  Now you don’t.<br><br>

As a uniformed cop leads [[Perps|Dahl]] away in handcuffs, Castle asks Beckett how she knew he would believe their ruse.  She answers that it was just a hunch and Castle tells her that her grandfather would be proud of her.  Beckett turns and thanks Tobias and Edmund, who is dressed to resemble Zalman’s ghost, for their help in making Dahl think he was seeing Zalman.  Tobias says it was the least he could do and that he planned to include the trick in his future shows as a tribute to Zalman.  Edmund thanks both of them as Castle asks what will happen to the magic shop.  Edmund and Tobias answer that they plan on finding a way to keep it going.  Beckett bids them goodnight and they leave.  Ryan enters with papers for Beckett to sign and she asks where Esposito is.  Ryan then dares them to guess and they all predict he is out with Lanie.  Ryan expresses disbelief that he still thinks none of them know about their relationship, but Castle tells them to keep up the charade since their happiness will fade eventually.  Beckett disagrees saying it won’t if they are with the right person.  Castle looks at her meaningfully then hears his cell phone rings.  Seeing it is Gina, he excuses himself to take the call, leaving Beckett studying the case file.  After a few moments, she goes to get a bottle of water from a vending machine and overhears Castle on his phone breaking up with Gina.  She is surprised, but gathers herself quickly enough to return to her desk before Castle discovers she is there.  Castle ends his call and puts on a happy face as he heads back to Beckett’s desk where she is gathering her things to go home for the night.  He asks if she has plans with Josh and she answers no since he is working and that she planned on getting dinner out.  She invites him to come along and he excitedly agrees.  As they head for the elevator, he thanks her for not making a big deal out of his public fight with Gina.  She nods, then once they are both on the elevator, pulls a bouquet of fake flowers out of her coat sleeve and hands them to him.  They both grin widely as the doors close.
